Best Fish Food
Tetra JumboKrill Freeze-Dried Jumbo Shrimp
This type of jumbo shrimp is ideal for the larger species of fish like Tetras, snowflake eel and even hermit crabs. One of the coolest parts about this type of food is the fact that it is especially helpful in keeping the eels and hermit crab colors vibrant.
It has heavy amount of Vitamin E, protein, and fat which helps keep their colors, young. This type of food can be frozen which makes for a longer expiration date as well.
This is great if you like to stock up and buy a bunch at a time as the frozen food can be unthawed at any time and used.
TetraCichlid Cichlid Flakes
This fish food is ideal for the top and mid-water feeder fish like African Cichlids. There are a few different sizes available and it is important if your Cichlids have never tried this fish food before, to buy the smaller one first, just in case they don’t take too well to it.
The flakes are full of Vitamin C and are thicker than you would think so they hold up well when nibbled on. The nutrients in each flake are helpful for your their immune system. Be sure you know your fish will like to eat these flakes before buying a large container of it – it will definitely last you a while!
Zoo Med Spirulina 20 Flake
This fish food is made for freshwater and saltwater fish – the flakes are packed full of nutrients such as raw protein and amino acids. The prices for this brand are fairly cheap, considering the amounts of grams you are getting in each container.
The only downfall of this type of flake food is that the flakes are on the larger side and may not be safe for smaller fish.
Hikari Tropical Semi-Floating Micro Pellets
The green pellets are rich in vegetable fibers; red means they are full of amino acids and protein, and the yellow pellets are good for vitamins and minerals. This ensures your fish get a balanced and nutritious diet. These pellets are not going to sink fully in the tank as they are meant to feed the mid-water feeding fish.
TetraMin Tropical Flakes
This fish food is obviously the best for tropical freshwater fish like an angelfish or guppy. It is stuffed full of a ProCare blend of Omega-3 fatty acids which are important in order to gain healthy weight, and have their immune systems, boosted; it also aids in the improvement of metabolism.
These flakes are easily digestible and have proven to not cloud the tank water and make things dirty.
